It's about that time again around cam­pus at East­side. It seems like ev­ery year the school is buzzing right be­fore Thanks­giv­ing. That's be­cause the Lady Ea­gles Com­pe­ti­tion Cheer squad is once again re­gion champs.

While the foot­ball and softball teams have been reg­u­lars at the state play­offs, so has the com­pe­ti­tion cheer team. The Lady Ea­gles cap­tured their third straight re­gion cham­pi­onship Satur­day and are headed to Colum­bus for the state meet Satur­day.

East­side won the Re­gion 8-AAA ti­tle the past two years but moved to a new re­gion this year. The move to 4-AAA had no af­fect on the even­tual out­come. Now the Lady Ea­gles will go up against 16 teams for the Class AAA ti­tle. They are seek­ing their first state cham­pi­onship.
